About Us

AKTS, Siders, Valais, Switzerland

Overview

AKTS is based in Siders, Valais (Switzerland). It is dedicated to bringing together the worlds of solid state kinetic analysis, thermogravimetry (TG), differential thermal analysis (DTA), differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), thermomechanical analysis (TMA), evolved gas analysis (EGA, MS, FTIR) and thermal stability of materials. AKTS technology provides users with the required precision in an age where use of high performance materials is expanding, with a continuing infusion of new materials and applications. This situation is further enhanced by recycling efforts, and the growing use of thermal analysis for material's quality control. AKTS provides access to information on thermal stability of materials for a multiplicity of users. We believe that this combining of solid state kinetic analysis and thermal stability of materials has a great future.
